It’s no secret that late payment is one of the leading causes of business failure.

When the cash stops flowing, many firms – even successful ones – can be forced out of business.  How can you best manage this tough yet critical part of your business?

The key is to be prepared with the right strategy and techniques that enable you deal with non-payment of customer invoices effectively without feeling awkward.
